Introductory Labs

Department of Physics Waitlist Policy

Almost all Physics courses--including the introductory labs--utilize the electronic waitlist system on Wolverine Access. When a seat becomes available in a class that was previously full, overrides will be issued at the discretion of the department or instructor, typically in the order that students joined the waitlist, although in some cases class standing will also be taken into account. Students will have at least 48 hours to register for a course once an electronic permission is issued to them.


If you have questions about the waitlist process, please email us at physics.sso@umich.edu.

First-Day Attendance Policy for Physics Labs

Students are required to attend the first day of lab class. Any student that does not attend the first day of lab will be dropped in order to make room for waitlisted students. If you have any questions, please contact physics.sso@umich.edu
